This next D.I.Y. is incredibly cute and easy too! Kinsey made this ruched scarf with a pretty polka dotted lace. You don't need to own a sewing machine for this project and it only takes about 30 minutes to complete! Great gift idea? I think so.
1. Supplies Needed: You'll need a large strip of lace fabric appx 3 yards long x 12 inches wide, white embroidery thread, and scissors. 2. Cut fabric to size. Remember, depending on the size of the ruffles, your scarf length will be between 1/2-1/3 as long as your fabric is. Then, we started our first ruffle 2 inches from the side. We simply secured the first stitch with a knot and started stitching every 1/4 of an inch. (For larger ruffles make your stitches 1/2 or 1/3 of an inch) 3. Once there were a few stitches we lightly pulled our thread tight, causing the fabric to ruffle. When making the ruffles we made sure to not pull the thread too tight, but leave it slightly loose so that the ruffles are more spread out. The tighter your thread the shorter the scarf! 4.We did this until we got all the way to the end of the fabric, and then repeated the process on the other side to make two separate ruffles with about 8 inches in between. ♥
Here are three cute ways to style this scarf! I think it would be really cute with a school boy blazer and it's a piece that could transition into spring with a sundress too.
I hope you have fun creating your ruched lace scarf! XO, elsie + kinsey

I am in love with this scarf, but having trouble finding lace that is similar to yours. Can you tell me where you got the fabric?
